“In this intelligent novel Hammesfahr has etched with precision the thoughts of a woman on the edge of madness.”—Der Spiegel Cora Bender killed a man. But why? What could have caused this quiet, lovable young mother to stab a stranger in the throat, again and again, until she was pulled off his body? For the local police it was an open-and-shut case. Cora confessed; there was no shortage of proof or witnesses. But Police Commissioner Rudolf Grovian refused to close the file and began his own maverick investigation. So begins the slow unraveling of Cora’s past, a harrowing descent into a woman’s private hell. Hailed as Germany’s Patricia Highsmith, Petra Hammesfahr has written a dark, spellbinding novel. At the top of the bestseller list, The Sinner has been reprinted sixteen times and sold over 760,000 copies at home. Translated into eleven languages, this is the first Hammesfahr title published in English. Petra Hammesfahr, born in 1951, left school at thirteen, became pregnant by an alcoholic at seventeen, and began writing novels at the age of forty. Her first thriller was turned down 159 times, but eventually success arrived. Hammesfahr has written over twenty crime and suspense novels. She also writes scripts for television and film. She is married with three children and lives near Cologne.
«Spannend bis zum bitteren Ende.» (Stern) Cora Bender verbringt mit Mann und Sohn einen Sommernachmittag am See. Auf den ersten Blick eine ganz normale Familie. Doch etwas unterscheidet Cora von den anderen jungen Müttern: Sie wird heute nicht nach Hause zurückkehren – sie hat sich entschlossen zu sterben. Als es Abend wird, lebt Cora noch und muss sich wegen Mordes verantworten. Alle stehen vor einem Rätsel. Was hat diese stille, liebenswürdige junge Mutter veranlasst, mit einem Messer blindwütig auf einen Fremden einzustechen? Für die Polizei ist die Beweislage klar. Nur Hauptkommissar Rudolf Grovian sucht nach einem Motiv und deckt einen Alptraum auf. «Meisterlich genau zeichnet Hammesfahr in ihrem beklemmenden, intelligenten Roman die Gedanken einer jungen Frau am Rande des Wahnsinns nach.» (Der Spiegel)

Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization, and helped make us who we are. One of the greatest explorations of sin, epiphany and redemption ever written, the Confessions of Saint Augustine continue to shape our ideas with their passionate declaration of the life-changing power of faith.
Waking up not knowing his name probably isn’t the worst thing that ever happened to him. I think. With no memories, he can’t know for sure, and while he chases the thin threads of recollection, he must fight for his life in Lac’uus. Also known as the pit, Lac’uus is where those with vices come to play. Except he’s not one of the buyers. Sold to pay a debt, Oblivion must fight if he wants to survive and prove cunning if he wants to escape. Or…he could just stay. There is no denying the intoxicating adrenaline of the fights, the females offered as prizes alluring. And he might have been content with his lot in life if not for the new concubine who glares at him with such accusation. The female, a human from Earth, acts as if she knows him. Responds with soft gasps to his touch. She claims they share an intimate past, a past he doesn’t remember but has certainly betrayed with his sins. But he won’t apologize for what he’s done. The rules are different in the pit, and Oblivion does what he must to survive until the day his memories come smashing back and the sinner must face his past. ***This book is a raunchy space adventure with sexual situations and violence.
